Sakura Rose @ DC Fest ’10

Last Saturday at the DC Fest, I helped out at a booth with Jessica Rogers, founder of Sakura Rose, a modest clothing store based in New Jersey. They like to go around Christian and womens’ festivals all over the US to help spread the word about their store and the values behind their clothing. I felt very fortunate when I found out that last weekend’s festival was at my college’s stadium (the Patriot Center at George Mason University), so the day doubled as an experience of not-too-long-ago nostalgia. Jessica was very nice and spirited, and I was very much delighted to meet her after our several conversations revolving around faith and fashion.

They have a lot of really neat items from the funky jewelry to the basic wardrobe must-have’s. The “Camis that Cover” tagline was probably what caught most people’s attention. Why wear a cami underneath a blouse if it doesn’t cover your goodies when you bend down? These do. Smart, eh? These camis should definitely be a staple of your closet if you don’t want to literally staple your chest to your shirt to avoid an embarrassing fashion faux pas! Pretty soon, there’s going to be a huge giveaway at Sakura Rose, so don’t forget to sign up for their e-newsletter or Facebook for alerts and sales. Being in on the insider scoop, I believe it’s not something you’d want to miss! Thanks to the hubs for his moral support, cuddles, camera assistance, and male presence in an otherwise female-dominated booth.

Also, I want to thank Aline for posting my photos on her blog as an example for “monochrome in spring”.
